    Pursuing my dreams

    Hi everyone my name’s Vikram Pooni. Don’t listen to the haters. I went to SGU, failed the step multiple times and didn’t do anything for 4 years. Now I’m at AUA attempting to pursue my dreams so you can do it too! All you need is a winning essay like mine (see below). Feel free to pm me if you have any questions or need any help.


    Essay: While I can say now, irrefutably and unwaveringly, that I want to be a physician, there was a time when I ceased to stand in allegiance with my soul and its purpose of healing. In this, I experienced a sense of failure—tangibly and intangibly, minutely and maximally, within me and beyond me. I attended St. George’s University from 2014-2016 and failed the USMLE Step 1 after completing and passing all basic science courses, along with all pre-requisites to sit for the USMLE. In my failure, I was unable to find the words in expressing how much I felt that I could no longer become a physician one day—only silence could signify the loss of my faith. And so, I remained silent, contemplative, and even discouraged. These might have been the moments I experienced soul-loss, albeit I remained incognizant of such a profound loss at the time. I had forgotten why I even wanted to be near medicine.

    I felt lost and dimmed. That’s when I decided to work with a local physician, Dr. **** Qadri D.O., where I live. I was given the opportunity to work as a medical scribe and to be in an environment where I lived in the day to day of a General Practitioner. I assisted Dr. Qadri and with this, I was brought a reminder: medicine is the art and craft that I want to practice and with which I must associate myself. My conclusion while working under Dr. Qadri always led me to this singular point.

    In the breadth of my clinical experience at this office, I worked with thousands of patients and spent over hundreds of hours with them. I found that patients show us that humans are sensitive, and that empty healthcare just won’t do. Existentially, many individuals have their backs against unforgiving walls. I’m at a position in which the career I am pursuing is filled with many obstacles, some that I have faced and by which I have been defeated. Working in communities like South Richmond Hill showed me what an underserved community is. I see that I am not alone when faced with daunting problems. I felt like my problems were miniscule compared to what each patient had to come and share with me each day. I felt compassion when I came into the office and when I was the last one to leave every day. I wanted to learn as much as possible, and to help provide care that was meaningful. I gained so much respect for the field of medicine and for its patients. I grew increasingly perceptive of how important the physician-patient relationship is, and how so many relationships are involved and evolve in healthcare.

    American University of Antigua has my chance to help me become a successful physician. I’m writing to you for an opportunity to prove to myself and to the world that not only can I succeed, but that my purpose—and the purpose brought to me by a reignited soul—is to heal. Even going through the worst moments, and experience perpetual self-loss—a loss often unaccounted—I felt that there remains a distinct reason for me to continue in my pursuit of medicine. I want to be a student at the American University of Antigua in order to achieve expansive growth, gain a magnitude of skill, continue learning in and appreciating an academic context, share compassion, individualistically and innovatively contribute to medicine, and to be a physician—the only pursuit in which I could find myself fulfilled.
